Ok, I'm sure some of you will be wondering why in the heck I have a strange frog card to show you today, and the truth is, I couldn't resist. I get bored doing the same type of thing over and over, and needed to do something different. This whimsical froggie from Purple Onion Designs is just what the Dr. ordered.
He's colored entirely in colored pencils on Kraft paper, with NO OMS blending. This is the way I used to color in High School art class, lol. There are a lot more layers of color this way, which provides a beautiful depth to the image.
I am really happy with the way this card came out, it took me a lot of time, but well worth it. The gorgeous lily pad flowers are a Silhouette Store cut file that I shrunk down quite a bit. I hand cut the tall grasses with my trusty sharp little scissors.
Hope you like it as much as I do, thanks for stopping by!
